    Rattling/Ticking Noise???

    Anyone have a clue what this noise is? I have a 1.8 2001 coupe and the noise is coming from the drivers side of the engine bay. A tinny sounding rattle. At first I was thinking water pump going, but the noise is intermittent. I asked the last time it was in the garage but as usual when they had it, no noise

    Have a look at the bottom timing belt cover as when loose or not seated correctly this can give a metal to metal sound, if you take it off u might see if the timing belts been catching on the cover. Not saying it is this but worth a check as this happened to mine.

    Possibly a belt tensioner somewhere? Cam belt tensioner or aux belt?
